Abstract

Oncologic reconstruction of the nose and scalp following Mohs micrographic surgery poses a significant challenge for plastic surgeons. While these defects are traditionally reconstructed using primary closure techniques, skin grafts, local flaps, pedicled flaps, and free tissue transfer, the incorporation of biologic healing wound agents such as Integra and Cytal provides patients and surgeons with alterative reconstructive options without additional donor site morbidity. Herein, we review the use of biologic agents used in soft tissue reconstruction of the nose and scalp following Mohs surgery.
